?ᴱ√BATA root. “*build”

⚠️?ᴱ√BATA root. “*build”
ᴹ√BAT “tread”

A hypothetical early root needed to explain various “building” words in Gnomish, such as G. bad “building”, G. bada- “to build” and G. bant “wall” (GL/21). It is unlikely this root survived in Tolkien’s later conceptions considering the many later words with similar meanings but different forms.
